Home Remodeling Contractor

Whether you’re thinking a large residential remodeling project, a kitchen makeover, the addition of an in-law suite, a front facade update or you want to discuss general remodeling ideas, be sure to contact Stu Garlington at 301-880-0103.

Towne Craft Builders, LLC — with proper state and county licensing requirements — opened their doors in September 2002 to serve the residents of St. Mary’s and Calvert Counties. In 2006, Towne Craft expanded its focus to include remodeling and became Towne Craft Builders and Remodelers.

You may be thinking of a front exterior makeover, a new room addition, or finishing off the basement to meet your lifestyle needs.

The following is a sampling of the various home remodeling and major renovation projects completed recently.

Recent home remodeling/addition highlights:

Our client turned an unused formal living room into a home office/study by installing French Glass Doors in the openings between the foyer and living room and dinning room.

Major renovation of lakeside home, sitting 30' below street level, where two-story screened porches on each side of residence were removed, making way for kitchen makeover; meditation room and two exercise rooms; all materials and debris were hand carried to and from the job via a series of wooden walkways and stairs.

Basement Renovation
{Leonardtown - Singletree}
| Close

Finished basement assistance. As often happens, a more than capable do-it-yourselfer with a limited amount of time and good intentions ran into scheduling conflicts. This client called Towne Craft to help move the project along. We took over where the owner’s time ran out and helped get the project back on track.

18’ x 22’ Addition to split-foyer home; with full bath added in the existing basement.

Basement Exit Window {Leonardtown}
| Close

Basement Exit Window. As often happens, a basement without an outside exit is finished. While this makes excellent use of the existing structure and certainly economic sense sometimes it doesn’t make safety sense. If there is concern that someone could be trapped in a fire in an underground room you might, as this owner did, want to provide an emergency exit. In this case, we cut through the foundation wall and installed an exit window with an oversized window well so if need be, the occupants of the room could climb to safety in the event of a fire. The added benefit: a once dark room now has some natural sunlight.

Waterfront lpe Deck
| Close

The owners of this weekend retreat wanted to compliment the stone pool deck with wood. Ipe was selected for its extremely long life, durability, and ease of maintenance. The round deck above the main deck, cable rails, arched stairs and lighting are a must see. See here >>

Lakeside Home & Kitchen Makeover {Lusby}
| Close

Major renovation of Calvert County "Kit House" home — in the $120,000 - $140,000 price range — is making a previous weekend getaway a wonderful residence for full-time living. Two-story screened porches on each side of residence were removed, making way for kitchen makeover; meditation room and two exercise rooms. Read More >

Front Porch Makeover {Leonardtown} Details | Close

Front Porch Makeover. This lovely waterfront home’s front porch had seen better days. The wood rails and post where showing their age and the concrete porch slab had settled in the middle by three to four inches. Towne Craft removed the old concrete slab added the fill necessary to bring the porch up to grade, tamped the fill, and replaced the concrete with brick pavers. The rails and posts were replaced with low maintenance vinyl rails and posts and handrails were added at the stairs for safety.

In-Law Suite Addition {Wildewood}
| Close

A 970 sq. ft. in-law suite addition that includes a large master bedroom and luxury bath with an oversized soaker tub, which abuts a glass enclosed shower large enough for two. Its floor is level with the main bath floor for easy access. The master bed room has its own laundry room and a large walk-in closet. The owners added a study with built-in bookcases and an island desk topped with granite that is shared by the in-law suite and main house. See More >>

Front Exterior Makeover {Sotterley}
Details | Close

A simple no frills Cape Cod exterior make over that included a new front entrance with composite decking, new 6” beaded and cedar shake vinyl siding, and a new roof with architectural shingles. See the dramatic before and after photos here >>

Screened-in Porch {Leonardtown}
Details | Close

Screened porch on an existing two-story deck facing Breton Bay. These owners of a beautiful waterfront home found they couldn't enjoy the view from their deck all season long. Now with an enclosed screened porch on part of the upper deck, they enjoy outdoors all season.

3 - Car Garage {Hollywood}
| Close

22’ x 32’ three-car garage with second floor in-law apartment above; included a 14’ x 6’ veranda/entrance on first floor with a 14’ x 6’ covered deck on second floor

Custom gazebo added to an existing deck


Some of our upcoming home remodeling projects:

In-law-suite. We are about to enter the design stage with these clients who want to take advantage of their walk-out basement to make room for their parents. The proposed solution includes a self contained apartment complete with a kitchen and room addition. The addition will extend the family room above and create a courtyard effect for a separate entrance for Mom and Dad and bring lots of natural sunlight into this finished basement.

Master Suite Addition {Saint Mary’s City} Details | Close

Master suite. The owners of this 1960’s split level recently completed a whole house makeover of this stunning waterfront home and are at it again. This time the owners have elected to work with Towne Craft Builders and Remodelers. We are about to enter the design stage of this project and will work with the owners to create an addition on the backside of the home that extends the existing master bedroom and bath to create a Master Suite. The most challenging part of this project is the owner’s request to create an observation area accessible from the new Master Suite in the rear that will overlook the front of the home and have a view of the water at the front of the property. Simultaneously, our job is to integrate the addition into the Craftsman stile previously created during the original makeover while not making it look like an addition.

Whole House Makeover {La Plata} Details | Close

This 1985 colonial home has served its family well but it's time to update and expand. The renovations are so extensive these owners are moving out for the duration. We more than doubled the size of the kitchen, making room for a new master suite and luxury bath above. This new owners space will contain a walk-in closet, oversized jetted tub, seated shower and his & hers vanities. Additional storage space is being added behind the garage on the 1st floor that makes way for a reconfigured 2nd floor above adding a bedroom and 2nd floor laundry. When they're available before and after pictures will be posted.
